Then why is the Bush Admin. silent on these points?
I do believe that we are winning the WOT and that Iraq is in much better shape then is being portrayed. However, we are in grave danger of losing the war on the home front due in a large part to a lack of a presentation of the facts to the American people.
And please do not blame the media, as they slant all news the way they want it slanted. A clear, concise, summary with loads of evidence, properly presented to America cannot be kept quiet.
Sorry, but President Bush is getting beat on a presentation of the facts to us, while the Democrats are controllinbg the perception of the events surrounding this and other topics.
"The administration does not want the victims of Sept. 11 interfering with its foreign policy," says Peter M. Leitner, director of the Washington Center for Peace and Justice (WCPJ). Leitner says the Bush administration may be concerned that if other victims of the Sept. 11 attacks also filed lawsuits and won civil-damage awards it would reduce Iraqi resources that the administration wants to use to rebuild the country. Leitner and others say this explains Bush's reticence at this time to report the convincing evidence linking Saddam and al-Qaeda that has been collected by U.S. investigators and private organizations seeking damages. "The [Bush] administration is intentionally changing the topic," claims Leitner, and sidestepping the issue that "Iraq has been in a proxy war against the U.S. for years and has used al-Qaeda in that war against the United States."
